Grand Cur Classé. The very Top of the Saint Emilion AOC Classification. I found a small amount of this fantastic 2005 Vintage wine through a supplier that put me on to the source.75% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. For years, Château Chauvin produced a high quality wine, worthy of the rank to which he was raised in 1954. The wine is supple and seductive, with a dark color, a fruity nose, a beautiful mouth feel. The vinification of this Saint Emilion Grand Cru Classé combines respect for tradition and modernity. Manual harvest is done every year to optimize the fruits at their best maturity. After Aging 15 to 18 months, mainly in new barrels, the unfiltered wine is bottled at the Chateau. Production is about 50,000 bottles a year of Grand Cru. The 2005 is one of the best years this wine has ever produced
